2010 Audi A8 Comfort & Quality

Comfort & Quality

Passenger comfort is a strong suit of the latest big Audi.

The 2010 A8 sports some of the most comfortable front seats in any vehicle at any price. The multi-adjustable chairs are large enough for big adults, for instance. They're firm enough to hold front passengers in place during brisk driving maneuvers, yet superbly cushioned for long-haul drives. Testing an extended-length A8 L, MyRide reports, "Seating is firm and supportive front and rear, and rear occupants enjoy substantial amounts of leg and foot room to ensure total comfort."

The 2010 Audi A8/A8L is one of the most comfortable and luxurious cars on the market.

The backseat in the standard-wheelbase model is more than spacious enough for average-size adults; the extended-wheelbase A8 L offers up near-limousine legroom to please even the longest-limbed passengers. The rear doors in the 2010 Audi A8 are longer than most, making life easier for second-row passengers. Automotive.com notes that the A8L "provides more room and comfort for rear-seat passengers, not that the standard-length model is cramped." Trunk space is good for the class.

The quality of the 2010 A8's interior is exceptionally high even in the class, with soft-touch surfaces, tightly fitted trim pieces, a sueded headliner, and custom wood trim among the highlights. Edmunds calls the interior "superb...with generous amounts of wood, Alcantara (suede) and aluminum accents." ConsumerGuide reports the A8's 19-inch tires are "most always whisper quiet," they say, but "rumble and whine a bit on coarse pavement."
